  • My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon at Peace of Eden, 29-31 May 2017. We were so blessed to have experienced the beauty of Knysna just before the fires started. We could not have chosen a better place! Our cottage was spacious, clean, thoughtfully decorated and homely :). We experienced breathtaking views, adventurous hiking trails, peaceful wildlife in nature and so much more on our doorstep.It's like home away... Read this review

  • A wonderful stay at Peace of Eden. The setting is very beautiful and the fireplace was a bonus for the cold nights. We will be returning soon for some more relaxing.
